The Judge, Mr Sulyman Ola, discharged Stephen following an application by the prosecutor, Chinedu Ogada, that the case be struck out due to lack of interest by the complainant, Augustine Sunday.

”Having heard the prosecution’s application to strike out the suit for lack of interest by the complainant; the case is hereby struck out.
